Members of the West Central Saskatchewan Regional Waste Committee met on September 4, 2013 in Eston to discuss the formal incorporation of the committee into the Western Regional Landfill Incorporation (WRLI).
Two locations were proposed by the 40 municipalities originally participating, but the project was reduced to one location when the number of participating municipalities decreased.
The WRLI board voted in favour of the Teo Lake location on July 24, 2016 based on the catchment area of the participating municipalities.
In January 2016, WRLI issued a Request for Expressions of Interest to seek interested parties to partner in the construction, financing, capture of energy, operation and/or other potential partnerships associated with a future landfill. A total of 15 proposals were received.
Loraas Environmental Inc. was selected as the successful proponent to build and operate the regional landfill.
